No. notification to the AEO: 36917 / 4-6-2008
NOW omega 3-6-9 provides a "balanced" combination of three essential fatty acids and their derivatives:
Omega-3 derived from flaxseed and rapeseed seeds.
Omega-6 derived from evening primrose oil and black currant.
Omega-9 derived from pumpkin seeds.
Supplemental intake of Omega 3-6-9 1000 mg by NOW Foods is particularly useful for cellular protection, brain and cardiovascular health, as the modern pace of life does not allow us to receive the good and necessary fats that we need every day!
The right intake of omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids is crucial. The importance of their balance is very great, because a diet that contains much more omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids, can change the whole physiology of the human body.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential, as the body is unable to synthesize them and therefore must receive them through the diet. According to nutritional studies, omega-3 fatty acids have thrombolytic properties and improve the function of the circulatory system, reducing blood pressure and the risk of blood clots. In addition, they contribute to the prevention of inflammation and the normal functioning of the brain, while with regular intake they reduce the levels of triglycerides in the blood. The source of omega-3 fatty acids are mainly fish oils from fatty fish, vegetable oils derived from flaxseed and oilseed rape, nuts and green vegetables.
Omega-6 fatty acids are another essential category of fatty acids, which we get mainly from seed oils, such as corn oil, sunflower oil and peanut oil. It is worth mentioning one of the omega-6 fatty acids, gamma linoleic acid (GLA), which is found mainly in evening primrose oil and borage oil. According to the international literature, based on scientific data, omega-6 fatty acids control the nervous, cardiovascular and reproductive systems, skin health and other biological functions.
Omega-9 fatty acids are considered the healthiest source of fatty acids in the body. Also important are the benefits of oleic acid, which along with the antioxidants of virgin olive oil, have the most beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system. Omega-9 fatty acids have very strong antioxidant properties and slow down the oxidation of cells, helping to maintain healthy cells and organs in all body systems.
